“The thinness, strength, and flexibility of the glass has the potential to enable displays to be “wrapped” around a device or structure.”
Corning Willow Glass will enable the industry to pursue continuous “roll-to-roll” processes (similar to how a newspaper is produced), which was impossible until now.
In this video you can see how the LCD-grade glass is designed to be mechanically reliable in roll-to-roll processing.
